where are we with batteries? you can't drive from massachusetts to new york without four times to charge or two times to charge. where is infrastructure to support that. not coming as quick as people thought it would. melissa: the company will spend staggering amount of money on capital expenditures. that is scary to any shareholder. tony, what do you think? >> people smarter than me think tesla is great product with right future. i don't see demand for this product. >> that's the key. >> until that meets the expectations being set by elon who is obviously larger than life figure in the industry certainly i don't buy it. >> segue was a brilliant product. melissa: that's right. >> someone who covered oil, if you have new technology where you can drill and keep extracting oil from, even from u.s. why do you need electronic cars? melissa: just a status symbol in hollywood. only some people buy that. lucky fans of "house of cards" out there, even very briefly leaked on netflix. did you hear about this?

noel thick pour, republican political strategist. why aren't they going do you think. >> i think this is personal diss to obama. i don't think they like the way he is running anything in regards to cyberterrorism or what is going on especially all the stuff that happened with the nsa i think they really are by not showing up sending a message to obama we don't really like what you're doing. melissa: this is after supporting him big time financially and in public, right, steve moore? >> i was just going to say that. basically these are the people who elected barack obama both in 2008 and 2012. the fact that they have soured on him i think she has the story exactly right. they're very nervous about the cybersecurity effort. and what effect it will have on internet freedom and ability to expand -- by the way there is a lot of concern about this net neutrality issue as well in silicon valley as well. melissa: tony, let me ask you, talking about creating a new government agency to deal with
seibert security. another bureaucracy to see exactly what solves the problem. >> to steve's point, net newt strat is net neutrality -- lesson you will learn after eight years of barack obama you could be a ceo, give him a ton of money, wall street done it, financial service silicon valley, he is still somebody who looks at world through his own mind's eye and world view, you will never be guaranteed a fair seat at table. melissa: maybe that is good thing. he can't be bought. noell, you're a fund-raiser. he can't be bought. >> one thing about bigwigs not showing up when obama comes to speak, i would, consulting for any republican campaign for 2016 i would target these people, guess what if you don't like what democrats are doing, or people following in obama's footsteps are doing, aka democrats, why don't you come aboard our train and maybe see if they can't get some of that

if i stick? buzzfeed asks video teaser. because he wants you to go to healthcare.gov. >> move beyond it and look at politics for a minute. this is president done a great job since 2007 since inception of his campaign, reaching out to young voters, reaching new media and social media. video aspect. not just twitter, facebook, linkedin. they use videos that control a story. republicans should not diss the strategy. >> i agree. >> what i think is troubling statement you have the -- at the same time you have the president skip things like paris for solidarity after murders there, skip netanyahu speech he sends troubling message where his priorities are where he spends at least most of his enjoyable time. melissa: we'll leave it there. american express shares dropping after its card was ditched by costco. the store will stop accepting amex payments next year on after the two companies were unable to

are changing their calls. melissa: this is a particular whale who speaks at a different frequency so he cannot committee with others and ends up wondering by himself. >> have you ever felt misunderstood? >> yes i have. >> you feel like an outsider, misunderstood, that is what is happening. whales can live up to 100 years and this whale has been swimming out in the abyss and it never once receiving a response because he speaks at 52-hertz. and so his nickname is 52. melissa: how does anyone know that? >> we have been listening to him since the cold war the u.s. navy have microphones in the ocean and they are listening constantly to the ocean scientists are able to take that data and to do this that this
call the 52-hertz is in fact a whale. see what you are funding this through kickstarter. but i would think that is a celebrity could raise anything. >> well, we figure lets a massive group of people who can empathize with this whale understand our desire to go out on this quest and understand our world better. we know less about the oceans, i mean, we know less about them than we do the surface of the moon and i think that it is time that we put our focus right here on the earth's. melissa: very cool project everybody wants to know about the movie of kickstarter i know the guys were filming for the movie and that caught a lot of attention? >> yes, we are always right in the thick of it. melissa: where does the movie pick pickup? the final episode that i was a huge fan of, you jump on a plane with the woman you're about to marry.
